Very nice property. Very nice staff and entertaining. Drink options need a major revamp and the Sports Bar food was terrible. TRS is worth the money the food drink and relaxation is all fun!! The sports bar had some very cheap liquor in the Hennessey bottle. If you're a Hen drinker just drink rum and coke it's not real Hennessey. I would go back but stay far away from the sports bar

Gorgeous property, gorgeous beach, helpful kind staff. Buffets were remarkably good, lots of options, very tasty. A la carte restaurants were okay, nothing super amazing. With the exception of Hemingway's and the bar at the TRS pool (which had quality liquors), the drinks at the resort were all made with cheap gut-rot liquor and not terribly tasty. If you're looking for a gourmet dining/ drinking experience, you may be disappointed. Otherwise, this is a fantastic, gorgeous resort with plenty of pool options, activities, snacks, and an incredible silky white sand beach.

BEWARE- DO NOT STAY AT THIS RESORT!!!! The Grand Palladium Palace Resort looks pretty on the outside but they have major issues. First, the HORRIBLE consist smell raw sewage in our room for days, so bad we had to open our patio door for some relief. When we tried to report the issue, the staff would grin and act as if there was not issue. Second- the power in the whole resort would go out every day (day and night) there is not back generator so you are made to grin and bare it until the lights come back one (it could be 1/2 hour or more) When asked why this keeps happening the staff smiles and says there is nothing they can do. Third, the phone in our room did not work the whole time we stay at the resort; I reported the issue everyday and the staff would say they would take care of it. Fourth, the food is not good, no real selection; you have to make reservations for dinner at the few restaurants they have on the resort; without a reservation be prepared to wait an hour or more without one. If you cant get a reservation be prepare to at one of the buffets (no good food at the buffets). The only place open after 11 is a sports bar with a horrible buffet and horrible menu food. Fifth, the mix drinks are watered down, so if you want a real drink do what we did order bottled liquor straight or on the rocks. So what else could have possibly happened, we got sick from the outside buffet!!!! Beware, do not go to this resort!!!!!

I thought the food was fair at best, it certainly was not great. We had a group of 12 and I dont think we ever ordered a meal or drink without the orders being messed up. There is definitely a language barrier.

Horrible customer service

Hotel was under construction everywhere, the staff was very rude not even a smile. Hot water was off everyday, called several times to complain and their response “sending someone over” no one showed up until our last night and that’s when we found out they were working on some broken pipes . At the restaurants you don’t need a reservation which was great, but..... the wait was over an hour and a half. Definitely will not go back

Highly Disappointing

BEWARE. 1 - The staff is not very friendly, they seem to only make friends with Spanish-speakers, and do not go out of their way to help AT ALL. 2 - It is virtually impossible to get a drink at the Palace buffet and at the Bohio restaurant. I had to chase down the staff to ask for a drink, even though they had walked by me several times. 3 - Every time we went to the Palace buffet, the tables were filthy, and we had to ask for someone to clean them off. 4 - Beware if someone pukes or makes a mess in your building lobby, it will not be cleaned until the next day. We had a used condom at the bottom of the steps in our building that sat there all day. That is disgusting and incredibly unacceptable. 5 - BUGS. There was a massive cockroach hanging out in our curtains one evening. We had an ant problem on our porch, but instead of taking care of the problem, the staff just swept them away each day. They were back every evening. 6 - Make sure to make reservations at ALL restaurants regardless of what you are told at check in. Otherwise you will be greeted rudely and will be treated like an outcast. 7 - Lastly, and MOST important - I was seriously ill for the last 3 days of our trip. I have never experienced anything like this in any of our many travels. We talked with several others at the resort that had also been very ill. I think they may have some problems with the food. It's very unfortunate that I had to be so ill that I was not able to enjoy almost half of my vacation.

Dear guest, First of all, we would like to thank you for taking your time to share you experience on Expedia.com, your words are taken into account because they help us to improve and offer a better service. On the one hand, We should apologize for all the inconveniences during you stay. We are going to take some actions in order to avoid these kind of situations. Personally, I will hold a meeting with the F&B Manager to change the service in the buffets and improve the attention with more english and customer care courses. Furthermore, I will speak with the head of chambermaids to pay more attention to the details not only in the rooms, in the villas too. In addition, I should inform that the Palladium Hotel Group is part of the HS Consulting program, which monitors all our standards in food handling, health and safety. HS Consulting is a reputed international company based in UK and our complex applies the highest international standards. This program includes periodical audits concerning health & safety issues. Our resort, with its 2000 rooms is listed as a safe hotel by HS Consulting (please check the following link) for its quality and high standards. http://hsconsulting.es/. Our Hygiene & Quality Department usually makes inspections with the control risk system of Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points, one of the most effective systems, which help to evaluate all levels of quality in beverages & food, swimming pools and Villas. We hope you can visit ud again in order to live a real Palladium Experience. Kind regards
